Uncle Josh: An early 20th Century Raconteur
Cal Stewart was a national treasure of the early 20th century. His recordings are a time capsule into the history of the rural life of this country. If you're a history buff, you can find all sorts of references to the life of the times, its burgeoning technology and some just hilarious commentary on what it meant to be a rural American.

A Look At Turn of the Century Comedy
Cal Stewart was a pioneer of late 19th, early 20th century comedy records. It's fascinating to hear these very old recordings (Stewart died in 1919). Although the jokes and stories are quite dated, many are still enjoyable.
